About Johnstown Cemetery, Johnstown
Following a United Brethren Church meeting September 28, 1902, seven acres of land north of the Elwell Store were purchased from J. B. Sloan for $20 an acre. The area was established as Elwell Cemetery.
A cemetery association, to care for the land, was formed with representatives from Johnstown, Milliken, Elwell, Great Western Sugar Factory, the Johnstown Home and Garden Club, and Forget-Me-Not Garden Club. Trees were planted and water pipes and a pump were installed to pump water from the Home Supply Irrigation Ditch.
Later, the Town of Johnstown established a Perpetual Care Plan to manage the cemetery with the town furnishing the labor. The grass was planted and the name was changed to the Johnstown Cemetery.
